Zoya - Yummy

APPLICATION: Somewhat difficult due to thick consistency.
SOURCE: Art of Beauty (
COMMENTS: This is a pretty blue that I've been eying for a while. It's just - yummy! Well named. However, I thought Zoya gave their polishes female names. I've never heard of anyone with this name. It's a deeper/slightly darker blue than my camera was able to capture (grrr!).
Either way, I fauxnaded with a full nail pattern from my Bundle Monster plates and stamped sideways to try to get most of the print on the bottom half of my nails. Yikes, I would have to triple stamp these on my thumbs if I was going for full coverage!  Would have liked full coverage, but I'm not yet confident enough in my placement to try double and triple stamping.

UP NEXT: Elle LDL - #221


  1. I like this shade in the ....shade. Otherwise it's a bit bright for me. I'm into dull at the moment.

    I think the tips are quite enough. Repeating the pattern can mean you don't see the detail so I think you did a good job.

  2. Very pretty!

  3. I know what you mean with the doublestamping, I wish those BM plates were bigger!
    But I think stamping the tips gave a very nice result, looks great :)

  4. I really like your stamped tips.
    Nice colour combination.

  5. Very pretty! I really like the subtle konading.

  6. how weird was just looking at this today!

  7. Thanks ladies! You've convinced me that I don't need to be able to cover my whole nail. I'm still wearing this now and enjoy looking at it.

    @Jen - It's actually not overly bright - at least next to my skin it's not. I think Zoya Robyn might be louder. I'm still making my way up to neons - maybe someday!

  8. Gorgeous on you! I might need this one. :D
    I love the subtle fauxnad you did...Soooo pretty.
